British H-Bomb Blows Up Real Good as Cold War Rages
Britain’s first H-bomb blows up real good, leaving spectacular mushroom clouds in this 50s newsreel. Also included are stories on atrocities in Algeria, helicopters in Washington, DC, farming techniques in Israel, and model airplanes in New York City. Basically, this is a typical 50s Cold War newsreel, but if you want mushroom clouds, this film has ‘em.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.

It was not easy the become a free Algerian.
Interesting to listen to the comments of American journalists on the Algerian war for freedom.
Here you can see some clip of the massacre of melouza.
